  • FULL-TIME: It's all over at Craven Cottage as Fulham run out 2-0 winners against a disappointing Aston Villa side.

  • Great effort from Benteke as his curling shot is tipped over the bar by Stekelenburg.

  • There will be three minutes of added time at the end of the 90 minutes.

  • Riise is desperate for a goal today and he fires in a shot which is comfortably saved by Guzan.

  • Sidwell dummies Dejagah's pass to allow Kasami a sight of goal, but the sub blazes his shot well over the top.

  • Villa have claims for a penalty turned down as Agbonlahor goes down in the box under Hughes' challenge, but Mike Dean waves away their appeals.

  • Double change from Villa as Lowton replaces Herd and Albrighton comes on for Weimann.

  • Riise finds space on the edge of the box and lets fly with his left-foot which fizzes just the wrong side of the post.

  • Fulham make another change as Kacaniklic comes off for Duff.

  • Brilliant block from Herd to keep out Riise's powerful shot from inside the box.

  • Herd clears the ball off the line after his clearance comes off his team-mate Baker.

  • Fulham make their first change of the game as Kasami replaces Karagounis.

  • Villa go straight up the other end and have a penalty claim waved away as Weimann's shot is blocked by Riise who is lying the ground inside the box, but it appears the shot struck Riise in the midriff and not on the hand.

  • Lovely move from Fulham as Dejagah plays a one-two with Sidwell before firing in a shot which is gathered at the second attempt by Guzan right at the feet of Berbatov.

  • Senderos gets on the end of Riise's free-kick, but on the stretch he is unable to direct his header goalwards.

  • Herd is booked following a late lunge on Karagounis.

  • More anxious moments for Villas as Sidwell almost gets on the end of a cross inside the six-yard box, but Herd makes a vital block to deny the Fulham man.

  • Fulham go so close to scoring a third as Guzan comes out and fails to collect Karagounis' cross and Riise sees his header come back off the post. So unlucky for the Fulham defender.

  • Berbatov tees up Parker on the edge of the box and on the half-volley the midfielder fires his shot wide of the target. More neat approach play from the home side.

  • Poor again from Westwood as his free-kick is too high and flies out of play.
